COVID-19 - Health / Safety FAQ

Health and safety questions regarding COVID-19

1) What are the general guidelines for safely returning to campus?
New cleaning and safety measures operate to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. Please follow these guidelines to help you play a role in contributing to the health and safety of our campus community. 

  • Face coverings:  Until a vaccine is available, the most effective way to protect yourself and others is to be 100% consistent in wearing a face covering at all times in public spaces. Face coverings may include commercially available or homemade masks, scarfs, bandanas or handkerchiefs.
  • Social distance:  Leave 1,5m physical distance between yourself and others at all times. Any time individuals come within 1,5m of another person, acceptable face coverings must be worn.
  • Hand-washing: Wash your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds several times throughout the day. Many hand-sanitizer dispensers have also been installed in every building. 
  • Classroom safety: Furniture in classrooms has been arranged to facilitate social distancing; please do not re-arrange the furniture. Comply with all guidelines in campus buildings, classrooms, laboratories, studios and common areas.
